Advanced Continuing Education for Prenatal Yoga Teachers
(open to birth, health and bodywork professionals)


Join Beth Donnelly Cabán and Lara Kohn Thompson in a weekend of exploration and in-depth learning on the anatomy, physiology and Yoga for pregnant women.
We will cover a broad range of topics such as how to safely teach a flowing class and build a bridge to both labor and postpartum. We will explore the use of Rebozo, partner work, restorative poses and how to work with high risk populations. We will learn safe hands-on tools for teachers and self massage for students. We will also leave some time for discussion to address any challenges and questions participants have encountered in their teaching.

Postnatal Yoga teacher training
Led by Beth Donnelly Caban and Lara Kohn Thompson

Personal Care, Adjustments, and Restrengthening. Emphasis is often placed on the process of labor and delivery, while little attention is given to the early postpartum period—a crucial and powerful time for a woman’s recovery, well-being, and vitality.

In this training we will address aspects of the physical and emotional recovery and recuperation from childbirth. Learn tools you can use with women in the early weeks and months postpartum to support their healing and prevent injury. You will learn to guide your students through a gentle and safe asana practice, as well as tap into the power of deep relaxation, pranayama, and meditation.

We will gather tools from Therapeutic Yoga and include practical exercises and age-old techniques to assist women in recovering their core strength, rehabilitating and toning those areas the most directly affected by pregnancy and childbirth: the pelvic floor and abdomen.

Learn ways to help women transition smoothly from their prenatal practice into the postpartum phase, and discuss ways to integrate those methods into women’s daily life and practice with a young child (or children).
